    Miss Betty you were the light in a room with a smile 1000 miles long! Loved getting to know you in DE, loved your spunk and your zest for life. You will be sorely missed by your family, but I have a feeling you’ll be watching over them closely and perhaps even riding one of those ponies that were so elusive. Rest in peace, lovely lady! xoxo

    Dearest Aunt…. no, Auntie (said with a proper English accent!) Bett… this is my most vivid memory of you… telling us you aren’t our Aunt, because you’re not a BUG, you are our Auntie. You’re spunky, and you’ll be dearly missed. We love you Auntie Bett!
